Research Topics


Group Focus

The Neural Dynamics research group’s interests span a wide set of topics in mathematical neuroscience and biological dynamics. Recent work focuses on optimal signal processing and decision making in simple neural networks, dynamics of neural populations in interval timing tasks, correlations and reliability in simple neural circuits, and properties of oscillator networks with generalized symmetries.
